Royal couture exhibition opens Fashion and Textiles Museum


Sir Norman Hartnell and Sir Hardy Amies were two London designers - whose creations were worn by the Royal family - most notably, the Queen.

An exhibition has opened at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey, south-east London, looking at how the designers became celebrities and helped put London on the international fashion map.

BBC London's entertainment correspondent Brenda Emmanus spoke to the Hartnell to Amies co-curator Michael Pick and to the Fashion and Textile Museum's Celia Joicey.
